I guess people have to accept that no one, aside from David Bain, will ever know for sure. But he's been found not guilty, and personally I think that's the right decision. To me it never made sense that a nice, sane guy with no motive (or at least far less of a motive than the other suspect) would murder his entire family.


you mean someone who plans an alibi for raping a jogger involving doing his paper run faster than normal :o

According to one guy whom David Bain may have had a falling out with who came forward 14 years after the crimes, and whos evidence the trial judge deemed inadmissable?

Where's the "I've always thought he did it and this trial hasn't changed my opinion at all" option?
I agree that he hasn't been proven innocent, just not guilty.
However, the system has spoken, and that's fair enough I guess.

I still wonder why the cops or certain cops at least were so 'passionate'

Trials in NZ don't offer the option of a verdict of "innocent". Presumably thats because of that whole bill of rights clause that says we've all got the right to be presumed innocent of a crime until proven guilty. David Bain hasn't been proven guilty. I think that means that everyone needs to respect his status as a man who is innocent of the crimes he was tried for.

I guess that the Karam household is still alive and well gives David some brownie points that he maybe innocent.

If every high profile murderer had a person like Karam take up the cause it makes you wonder how many of them would also get off. People such as Barlow from Wgtn and the sounds guy who murdered the two on his boat. There are things that dont add up in both those cases as well. Barlows case is currently with the privy council and there are gaps in the evidence from the Sounds trial.

Did they know each other? or why did Joe Karam care so much about some guy he'd never met?


It's probably explained in one of Joe's books, but from my memory he thought the whole thing was fishy / hard to believe so Karam flew himself to Chch, visited David in prison (they had never met before) and became convinced that David - "as nice and normal a young man as you would ever meet" - couldn't possibly have killed his family - the rest, as they say, is history.....
